The Autodesk(R) Inventor(R) 2017 (R1) iLogic student guide teaches students to use the iLogic functionality that exists in the Autodesk(R) Inventor(R) 2017 (R1) software. In this practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge needed to use iLogic to automate Autodesk Inventor designs. In this student guide, students learn how iLogic functionality furthers the use of parameters in a model by adding an additional layer of intelligence. By setting criteria in the form of established rules they learn how to capture design intent, enabling them to automate the design workflow to meet various design scenarios in part, assembly, and drawing files. Topics Covered iLogic functionality overview. iLogic workflow overview. Review of model and user-defined parameters, and equations and their importance in iLogic. Understanding the iLogic interface components (iLogic Panel, Edit Rule dialog box, and iLogic Browser). Rule creation workflow for Autodesk Inventor parts and assemblies. Using variations of conditional statements in an iLogic rule. Accessing and incorporating the various function types into an iLogic part, assembly, or drawing file rule. Event Triggers and iTriggers. Creating Forms to create a custom user interface for an iLogic rule. Prerequisites The class assumes a mastery of Autodesk Inventor basics as taught in Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. The Autodesk Inventor Advanced Part and Assembly Modeling student guides are also highly recommended. No programming knowledge is required to use the basic iLogic functions; however, programming experience can be an asset when using the advanced functions.

This book aims at finding some answers to the questions: What is the influence of humans in controlling CAD and how much is human in control of its surroundings? How far does our reach as humans really go? Do the complex algorithms that we use for city planning nowadays live up to their expectations and do they offer enough quality? How much data do we have and can we control? Are today’s inventions reversing the humanly controlled algorithms into a space where humans are controlled by the algorithms? Are processing power, robots for the digital environment and construction in particular not only there to rediscover what we already knew and know or do they really bring us further into the fields of constructing and architecture? The chapter authors were invited speakers at the 6th Symposium "Design Modelling Symposium: Humanizing Digital Reality", which took place in Ensa-Versailles, France from 16 - 20 September 2017.

The Autodesk(r) CFD 2017 Essentials student guide instructs students in the use of the Autodesk(r) CFD software. The software provides computational fluid dynamics and thermal simulation tools to predict product performance, optimize designs, and validate product behavior before manufacturing. Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge required to work in the Autodesk CFD environment to setup and conduct thermal and flow analyses on part and assembly models. Exercises are provided that cover electronic cooling, flow control, and AEC type models. Topics Covered Open and navigate the Autodesk CFD environment to conduct flow and thermal analyses on part and assembly models. Use the Model Assessment Toolkit to investigate the suitability of model geometry for analysis, and use Autodesk(r) SimStudio Tools to make required changes to the CAD geometry. Create internal and external fluid volumes. Setup analyses by applying appropriate materials, boundary conditions and mesh settings. Refine mesh to obtain a proper solution. Apply appropriate solver settings to run your analyses and converge to an acceptable solution. Use the visualization tools to compare summary images, summary values, and summary plots of your analyses to compare design and scenario results of an Autodesk CFD analysis. Conduct a final validation of your solution by running through a validation checklist. Prerequisites This student guide assumes that a student has some Flow and Thermal analysis knowledge and can interpret results. The main goal of this student guide is to teach a user that is new to the Autodesk CFD software how to navigate the interface to successfully analyze a model. This student guide was written using the 20160317 build of the Autodesk CFD 2017 software. The software user-interface and workflow may vary if newer versions of the software are being used.

This book helps decision makers grasp the importance, and applicability to business, of the new technologies and extended connectivity of systems that underlie what is becoming known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution: technologies and systems such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, 3D printing, the internet of things, virtual and augmented reality, big data and mobile networks. The WEF, OECD and UN all agree that humanity is on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As intelligent systems become integrated into every aspect of our lives this revolution will induce cultural and societal change of a magnitude hitherto unforeseen. These technologies challenge the values, customer experience and business propositions that have been the mainstay of almost every business and organization in existence. By redefining and encapsulating new value structures with emerging intelligent technologies, new innovative models are being created, and brought to market. Understanding the potential and impact of these changes will be a fundamental leadership requirement over the coming years. Skilton and Hovsepian provide decision makers with practical, independent and authoritative guidance to help them prepare for the changes we are all likely to witness due to the rapid convergence of technological advances. In short, bite-sized, nuggets, with frameworks supported by a deep set of practical and up-to-the-minute case studies, they shine light on the new business models and enterprise architectures emerging as businesses seek to build strategies to thrive within this brave new world.
